Inspired to Write



Ever wonder where an author gets her motivation to write? Ever since I was a child, I always dreamed of being a writer. When I was about nine years old, I spent months writing a story to give my parents that year for Christmas. A year later, I asked my parents, "Do you remember the story I gave you last year? Did you like it? One day, I'm going to be a real author." Later that night as I opened gifts, I remember one that seemed really heavy. I unwrapped the paper to discover a DHL box. When I opened the lid, I gasped in astonishment. Inside there was 100 copies of A Month in America, my very first story! Thanks to my dad, I was published!


That was the best Christmas gift ever! My dad had no idea that his gift would inspire me to pursue my dream of being an author. Even as I write this, my eyes well up with tears to know that this dream is finally coming true. Thank you, Daddy, for always believing me and for encouraging me to pursue my dream!
